The Cresta Bar

Get cosy in alpine-inspired surroundings

St. Moritz in winter is a feast of opulence and glamour, with a history very much shaped by the British and their spirit of adventure. Two such adventurers were Otto Goring and his son (also Otto), who made it their winter escape in the 1920s and 1930s. At the heart of this mountain hideaway is the famously hazardous Cresta Run, a beacon of Swiss and British inventiveness and derring-do. All of which has inspired the creation The Cresta Bar at The Goring, in collaboration with the Kulm Hotel St Moritz, home to the Sunny Bar - the Cresta Run’s unofficial clubroom, where riders come before and after their descent, for a fortifying snifter.

The cocktails are main event, especially created by the masters at The Sunny Bar and include a good old fashioned Bullshot, a sure fire favourite Cresta Punch, a classic Lemon Fizz and a few surprises such as Thrills and Spills and Shuttlecock, named after the infamous turn on the Cresta Run. The Goring will also be serving delicious Swiss inspired canapés from chef Shay Cooper.

The Cresta Bar is now open from 5pm in the evening (Mondays to Saturdays) until early 2017. Reservations are not required.
